Hannah Marin, 3Irs. IIouliousu's daugh

fiard for Frank Fixhfleld, had boon partly
promised to Major Ginger, a (irnm old
martinet, with a passion for Persian car
pctu and majolica.
That night a letter was written to papa,
and this was tho bilof reply:

Tho seaside hotel was as quiet as it
liad been described, tho company as soil

only walked on the piazza. Twlco a day
ovcryuody tumbled into tho sen. Hun
nah Maria, escorted by her mother to
tho bathlug-houso, followed everybody's

mother saw her meet and greet nniicl tho

largo shado hat and a bright bluo bathing
"Who was that?" alio asked Hannah
Maria on their return, and Hannah
Maria had answered:
"Oh, ma! it was dear Miss Simmons,
with whom I used to go to school."
And so day by day Mrs. Hobliouso
bnsked in tho sun, whllo Hannah Maria
sported in tho wares hand-ln-hand with
Miss Simmons, or greeted great billows
that momentarily engulfed her, causing
Mrs. Hobhouso to shriek. But, as sho
wroto to her husband:
Even while I am frightened almost out of my
senses I feel grateful, for I usod to bo inoro

With this good news to wolcomo him
Mr. Hobliouso camo to tho scasido, ac
companied by Major Ginger, and arrived
at tho hour which was devoted to bath

Mrs. Hobliouso sat watching her under
a largo white nrabrclla.
"That ono in tho gray bathing dress
trimmed with red is Hannah Maria, and
tho bluo ono is Miss Simmons," said Mrs.
llobhouso. "Bless us?" what objects

"Some people liko well-grown girls,"

"No. dear," said Mrs. Hobhouse,
Just then two figures crossed tho sand
Jones, tho boatman, who rowed peoplo
out for fifty cents an hour, nnd a eontio
man in black with a whlto neck-cloth.
"Looks liko a clergyman," said Mrs.
Jones, walking slowly to tho spot
whero his boat lay, stepped into it; the
gentleman seated hlmsolf in tho bow
and took a littlo book from his pockets
Off went tho boat-It skirtud tho lino of
Bwimmora and wont far out upon the
water. Then tho gentleman lifted a pair
of glasses to his noso and reconnoitcrcd.
At that moment Mrs. Simmons drow a
kerchief from some portion of her dress
nnd waved it in tho air. The boat at

tho ropo to which Miss Simmons and
Hannah Maria wero apparently at
tached. "Why, what on oarthl" cried Mrs.
"That's rather a forward person, that
Miss Simmons," said Hobhouse.
But Major Ginger, with his glass to his
eyes, suddenly started to his feel.
"A boat hero's another boat? go out,

"Oh, whatl aro they drowning?" cried
"Nol" cried old Ginger. "Nol Is

As for Mrs. llobhouso having clutched
tho glass wildly and uttered ono shriek,
sho fainted away on the sand.

A WREATH OF KEl'TILES.
Mr. Fcnton Thought It Was Mnde of
Cords When Ho Ticked It Up.
As Jore. Fcnton of South Orange, N.
J., was walking with his littlo nine-year-old
daughter in a small plantation near
his houso tho other day, ho saw what
looked liko a wreath of variogated cords
lying at tho foot of a trco. It was about
ton incites in diameter and perfectly cir
cular. Supposing that somo children at play
in tho woou had woven it, and carelessly
flung it away, ho picked it up and play
fully crowned his littlo girl With it; but
thore was a cold, clammy feeling nbout
tho thing that tho child did not liko at
all, nnd as it touched her forehead she
hastily shook It off. Then Mr. Fontou
mauo a cnicful examination, nnd was
considerably startled to find that what
ho had mistaken for a coidago wreath
was vory much liko. a double-headed
Tho two heads woro exactly opposlto
each other on tho circular brand; but Mr.
Fontou soon porcelved thnt each head
was attachod to a separate) body. Tho
variegated ring was in fact two snakes
that liad mixed themselves up as a sort
of mutual benefit society for tho wintor.
Thoir tails woro not visible, because each
had swallowed tho caudal extremity of
tho other and as mucn of tho uppor
anatomy as it could stuff down its throat.
Only when tho increased bIzo of the
body it was devouring, caused by tho
presencoof its own tall, put a stop to
further deglutition had cither serpent
censed its efforts. Then, forming a tight,
warm circlo to dofy tho cold, they liad
sunk into a torpor. Mr. Fcnton has
hung the curious garland to a rafter in
his barn. Ilo thinks if thero is a warm
spell tho reptiles will soon cast off their
fiigldlty and disgorgo each other.

A man who wna scalped, and still

tending from abqvo his right eye clear
around tho right sido and back of his
head almost to tho loft car. That is
whero the old man was scalped.
"It was in '00 with tho Sioux," ho ex

"What aro you doing there?"
Tho man to whom it is addressed is a
short, thick-sot man; there is nothing
about him to attract attention. Ho is tho
most tommon-placo man I have met for
somo time. Ho is simply leaning against
a pile of boxes, trunks nnd tho liko at n
railroad station. Upon first glanco ho
looks liko a sleepy old fellow, who may
have drank more than a flagon of rum,
or ho may have walked a long distance,

Presently tho crowd gets thicker.
The sleepy gentleman by tho trunks
becomes suddenly nroused. Ho moves
nbout vory rapidly among tho peoplo.
What will he do?
Hardly is thero timo to walk ton paces
when ho has disappeared. Tho train

went aboard. Tho man wus nowhere.
Thnt night one of tho boldest burglars
was arrested nnd lodged in jail. Ho was
arrested on tho train, and by tho sleepy
Tho arrest was accomplished thus: As
a rough-looking mau with u tin pail in
his hand walked quickly from tho depot
to tho train tho detective followed him
closoly, and Just as ho was about to put
his foot on the stop he tripped and fell
upon tho platform. In an instant tho
detective foil on top of him.
The two men woro assisted into tho
car, nnd then tho detective apologized
for having fallen on him. Tlioy Bat

old-fashioned dctcctivo took out of his

eight feet beforoho would turn and walk

and watched him closer.
"It was when I tripped up my friend
